4* NCAAB - Oral Roberts/Neb-Omaha ATS WINNER on Oral Roberts +1½ -109
Oral Roberts is definitely worth a look here at basically a pick'em on the road against Nebraska-Omaha. This is a great buy low spot on the Golden Eagles after losing their last two on the road against BYU and South Dakota State. At the same time, it's a good spot to sell on the Mavericks, who are off back to back wins.
While Nebraska-Omaha was able to win their last two, the defense continues to be a huge problem. The Mavs have now allowed 78 or more points in 5 straight games. That's a bit of problem here against a Oral Roberts squad that can light you up. Golden Eagles are averaging 78.4 ppg and have done so despite shooting just 42% from the field for the season.
Golden Eagles are 4-1 ATS last 5 road games and 17-6 ATS last 23 off 2 or more consecutive losses. Nebraska-Omaha on the other hand is a mere 10-22 ATS last 32 after covering 3 of their last 4. Take Oral Roberts!
|01-04-20||Pacers -6 v. Hawks||111-116||Loss||-109||11 h 34 m||Show|
4* NBA - Big Money ATS DESTROYER on Pacers -6 -109
I got no problem laying this kind of number with Indiana at Atlanta on Saturday. Pacers are going to be motivated to get a win after losing their last game at home to the Nuggets and the Hawks are the perfect team for them to get right against.
Just when it looked like Atlanta was going to be at full strength for the first time in a long time, John Collins tweaked his back and is out of the lineup. Even if Collins had been able to play, this was going to be a tough spot for the Hawks playing on no rest after laying it all on the line in a hard fought 106-109 loss at Boston last night.
Hawks are just 4-13 ATS last 17 games when listed as a dog of 3.5 to 9.5 points, 2-10 ATS last 12 off a cover and 1-6 ATS last 7 when playing on 0 days of rest. Take Indiana!
|01-04-20||Jazz -3.5 v. Magic||109-96||Win||100||9 h 20 m||Show|
4* NBA - Vegas ODDSMAKERS ERROR on Jazz -3½ -109
Easy play here on Utah as a small road favorite against the Magic. Orlando is missing a number of key guys to injury and are in an absolute awful scheduling spot. Magic were clearly motivated in their game last night at home against Heat, but given their lack of depth it will be hard to bounce back with another strong effort on no rest. It's also their 3rd game in 4 nights.
Utah on the other hand is in the midst of their best stretch of the season. Jazz have won 4 straight and 9 of 10 overall. They have covered each of their last 5 and have won 4 of the last 5 meetings with the Magic, including a 7-point home win earlier this season. That earlier result is worth noting, as Orlando is a miserable 0-10 ATS when revenging a road loss this season. Take Utah!
|01-04-20||UAB v. Old Dominion -3||Top||52-58||Win||100||21 h 19 m||Show|
5* NCAAB - C-USA PLAY OF THE MONTH on Old Dominion -3 -109
I love the value here with the Monarchs as a small home favorite against the Blazers. Don't be fooled by Old Dominion's 5-9 record, as they have played a really tough non-conference schedule. It also has them undervalued and we have seen that of late with them going 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
Most recently they won and covered in a 70-60 win at home over Middle Tennessee. UAB has lost 3 straight true road games. Most recently falling 44-51 at Charlotte in their last game. To only score 44 points against the 49ers tells you a lot about the struggles of this Blazers offense and this another tough matchup for them.
Not only does ODU make it tough on teams to score inside they dominate the glass. Simply playing good defense won't be enough for UAB in this one. Monarchs are 6-0 ATS last 6 times they have played a team like the Blazers that are giving up 64 or fewer points/game. Blazers are also 1-6-1 ATS last 8 times they have matched up with a team with a losing record. Take Old Dominion!
|01-04-20||Raptors v. Nets -1||121-102||Loss||-105||17 h 52 m||Show|
3* NBA - Vegas Oddsmakers LINE MISTAKE on Nets -1 -105
This is a great spot to fade the Raptors and take Brooklyn here at basically a pick'em on their home floor. Toronto is still down 3 starters in Siakam, Powell and Gasol and while they played well without these guys for a while, they are struggle at the moment.
Raptors have lost 4 of their last 6 and will be playing on just 1 day of rest after a grueling defensive game against Miami last time out. In total it's Toronto's 6th game in a 9 day stretch. So while the Nets have lost 4 in a row, they should be the fresher and more motivated team in this one.
Raptors are just 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games after a contest where they allowed 90 or fewer points. Nets are 28-15 ATS last 43 when they come in having lost 4 of t 5 and 23-10 ATS last 33 when revenging a road loss. Take Brooklyn!
|01-04-20||Middle Tennessee +8 v. Charlotte||62-68||Win||100||18 h 16 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - UNDERDOG PLAY OF THE WEEK on Middle Tennessee +8 -109
I really like the value here with the Blue Raiders as a near double-digit dog at Charlotte. It's been a real tough go for Middle Tennessee to start the year as they are just 4-10 SU and 1-9 ATS with a 0-7 ATS mark on the road. I believe the books have finally adjusted the number on the Blue Raiders, as this is a really good price to back them against the 49ers.
Charlotte just isn't a good enough team to be laying this kind of number, especially with how they are shooting the ball right now. After hitting just 33% from the field in a loss at ECU, they shot just 37% at home in a 51-44 win against UAB.
49ers are just 7-19 ATS last 26 off a win and a mere 1-5 ATS last 6 after holding a team to 50 or fewer points. Charlotte is also just 8-19 ATS last 27 at home after winning 4 of their last 5. Take Middle Tennessee!
|01-04-20||East Tennessee State +3.5 v. Furman||56-65||Loss||-109||18 h 5 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on East Tennessee State +3½ -109
East Tennessee State is worth a look here in a massive revenge spot against the Paladins. Last year Furman laid it on the Bucs 91-61. Thing ETSU has everyone back and have made it clear they want to make amends for what happened last season.
Hard to bet against the Buccaneers with how well they are playing. East Tennessee State has won 4 straight and 10 of 11 overall. They are 13-2 on the season and one of those losses is a road game at Kansas (by just 12 points).
ETSU will be hitting the road after playing their last 3 at home and that's worth noting as they are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games following 3 or more consecutive home games and a perfect 9-0 ATS last 9 times after playing 3 straight at home as a favorite. Furman is just 2-5 ATS last 7 overall and 1-4 ATS last 5 as a home favorite. Take East Tennessee State!
|01-04-20||Texas State -4 v. Arkansas State||70-67||Loss||-108||3 h 10 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - Texas St/Arkansas St ATS WINNER on Texas State -4 -108
If you just look at the records this line won't make a lot of sense. Texas State is 7-7 overall and 1-6 on the road, yet are laying a decent number here at Arkansas State, who is 10-4 overall and 7-2 at home. Trust the books in this one. Bobcats are the better team. They got the better offense and the better defense.
Note that Texas State has played the likes of Air Force, Baylor, Houston on the road and all 3 of those losses were by single digits. In fact, this team has only one loss all season by more than 10 points and that's a mere 12-point loss at Georgia State. Arkansas State hasn't been nearly as competitive against good teams and just lost at home by 19 to Texas Arlington.
Bobcats are 22-9 ATS last 31 road games after failing to cover their last 2 games and the favorite is a dominant 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in this series. Take Texas State!
|01-04-20||North Texas v. Marshall -3.5||67-64||Loss||-109||16 h 15 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Sharp Money ATS HEAVY HITTER on Marshall -3½ -109
The Thundering Herd are definitely worth a look here as a small home favorite against the Mean Green. Marshall comes into this game having won 5 of their last 6 with the only loss coming on the road against a UNI team.
They are perfect 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games, which has coincided with the addition of Andrew Taylor to the lineup. Since he's been added the Herd have scored a minimum of 80 points. That offense is simply going to be too much for North Texas, who despite a recent surge of scoring in their last few games are averaging just 60.6 ppg away from home, where they are 1-6 on the season.
Books simply haven't caught up to this new look Marshall team, plus we are seeing the Mean Green still a bit overvalued from their recent string of 6 straight covers. A streak that came to an end in their last game when they gave up 93 points on the road to WKU. Take Marshall!
|01-04-20||Georgia State v. Coastal Carolina +1.5||72-74||Win||100||2 h 10 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - Georgia St/Coastal Carolina ATS WINNER on Coastal Carolina +1½ -109
The Chanticleers are worth a look here as a small home dog against the Panthers in Saturday's Sun Belt play. Georgia State comes in having won 9 of 10 and are fresh off a 69-60 win as a 2-point dog at Appalachian State.
Thing is the Panthers will only have one day off between that game against the Mountaineers and this one. I just think it's asking a bit too much of the Panthers against a good Coastal Carolina team that has been playing well with 5 wins in their last 7 games.
Georgia State is also just 2-6 ATS last 8 as a road favorite, while the Chanticleers are 5-2 ATS last 7 as a dog. Take Coastal Carolina!
|01-04-20||NC State v. Clemson +2||70-81||Win||100||4 h 16 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on Clemson +2 -109
The Tigers are definitely worth a look here as a small home dog against the Wolfpack. The books are absolutely begging you to take NC State in this one. Wolfpack come in at 10-3 and are facing a Clemson team that is just 6-7 overall and a mere 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.
What people will overlook is the Tigers are poised to get things going. They just recently got back one of their better players in Clyde Trapp, who returned 3 games ago (recovering from offseason ACL surgery) and was just inserted into the starting lineup in their last game against Miami.
NC State simply doesn't play good enough defense to be trusted away from home. Wolfpack are allowing 80.2 ppg on 48% shooting in their 4 road games this season. That's a big problem against a Clemson defense that only gives up 58.8 ppg and 38% shooting at home.
Tigers are also 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and 5-2 ATS last 7 as a dog. Home team is also a strong 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in the series. Take Clemson!
|01-03-20||Pelicans +11 v. Lakers||113-123||Win||100||20 h 38 m||Show|
4* NBA - Late Night ATS NO-BRAINER on Pelicans +11 -110
I really like the value here with New Orleans as a double-digit dog against the Lakers. This is just too good a price to pass up with the Pelicans right now. New Orleans comes in playing their best basketball of the season, as they have won and covered 4 straight, including outright wins as road dogs against both the Blazers and Nuggets.
Lakers are clearly the more talented team, but I think they are so good that they have a hard time getting up for a team like the Pelicans. Same can't be said for New Orleans. With all the former Lakers' on the Pelicans roster, this is one they are going to give everything they got.
Pelicans are 31-17 ATS last 48 after 2 or more consecutive wins, while LA is a mere 2-7 ATS last 9 overall, 2-6 ATS last 8 as a favorite and 1-5 ATS last 6 off a game where they failed to cover. Take New Orleans!
|01-03-20||Temple -3 v. Tulsa||Top||44-70||Loss||-110||19 h 5 m||Show|
5* NCAAB - Vegas NO LIMIT Top Play on Temple -3 -110
I love the value here with the Owls as a small road favorite against the Golden Hurricane. Temple will be riding a wave of momentum after closing out their 56-49 win on the road against UCF on a 12-2 run. Their defense held the Knights scoreless for the last 3.5 minutes.
That win really speaks volumes to what this Owls team is capable of. Temple nearly won by double-digits despite shooting a mere 37.7% from the field and turning it over 17 times. I look for them to not only shoot the ball better, but take better care of it against a struggling Tulsa team that has lost 3 straight.
Golden Hurricane are just 4-13 ATS last 17 home games after 3 or more consecutive losses. Owls on the other hand are 7-2 ATS last 9 overall and 11-4-1 ATS last 16 on the road vs a team that's won more than 60% of their home games. Note that while Tulsa is 7-2 at home, they are just 4-5 ATS in those games. Take Temple!
|01-03-20||Blazers -5.5 v. Wizards||122-103||Win||100||10 h 25 m||Show|
3* NBA - Public ATS ANNIHILATOR on Blazers -5½ -109
The Blazers are definitely worth a look here as a decently priced road dog against the deplete Wizards. Public will have a tough time backing Portland after many were on them in their last game, which they lost by 24 on the road to the Knicks as a 4-point favorite. That only makes me like them that much more given they are laying an even bigger number in an almost the same spot against the same caliber a team.
I just think the Blazers ran out of gas after making the lengthy trip across the country over the New Years holiday. I expect a much more focused and energized Portland team in this one. As for the Wizards, they are decimated with injuries and there's a decent chance they won't have their best player in Bradley Beal. Either way I don't think they have any shot of keeping this close. Take Portland!
|01-03-20||Delaware -3 v. Drexel||55-61||Loss||-100||17 h 5 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Delaware -3 +100
The Blue Hens are worth a look here as a small road favorite against the Dragons. Delaware should be extremely motivated to get a win here after letting one slip away in their most recent game against Charleston. The Blue Hens let a 6-point halftime lead turn into a 12-point loss.
I think that setback is definitely giving us some value here, as they are definitely the more talented of the two teams here. Drexel has also been overvalued by the books, especially at home. Dragons are 5-9 ATS overall and just 2-5 ATS at home. They have failed to cover 3 straight and 5 of 6 overall.
Blue Hens have also been sensational in this spot, going 6-0 ATS last 6 road games vs a team with a winning home record. Dragons are also a mere 2-5 ATS last 7 as a dog and 1-4 ATS last 5 vs a team with a winning record. Take Delaware!
|01-02-20||Oral Roberts v. South Dakota State -1.5||79-96||Win||100||10 h 35 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - Late Night ATS ANNIHILATOR on South Dakota State -1½ -110
This is too good a price to pass up with the Jackrabbits at basically a pick'em at home against the Golden Eagles. All you have to do is look at the home/away splits to see the value in this one. South Dakota State is a perfect 8-0 at home compared to 2-7 on the road. Oral Roberts is 1-6 on the road compared to 6-0 at home.
The Golden Eagles are simply getting too much love here because they come in having covered 3 straight and each of their last 5 lined games overall. Thing is they are just 8-21 ATS last 29 on the road when they come in having covered 4/5 of their last 6.
Jackrabbits have been undervalued a lot lately, as they are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games. They are also 31-14 ATS last 45 off a conference loss and 4-0 ATS last 4 as a home favorite. Take South Dakota State!
|01-02-20||Thunder v. Spurs UNDER 218.5||109-103||Win||100||12 h 53 m||Show|
3* NBA - Over/Under Total DESTROYER on Thunder/Spurs under 218½ -109
Easy play on the UNDER in tonight's NBA matchup between the Spurs and Thunder. Oklahoma City likes to play at a slow pace and that combined with a mediocre offense and solid defense is a great recipe for low-scoring games. UNDER has cashed in each of their last 5 games.
Spurs inability to lock down defensively was a big reason for their early season struggles, but they have been much better on that side of the ball. San Antonio has held 9 of their last 14 opponents to 44% or worse from the field and will be facing a Thunder offense that has shot no better than 45% in their last 4 games.
UNDER is 10-5 in OKC's 15 road games this season, 27-12 in their last 39 as a dog and 11-2 in their last 13 with a line of +3 to -3. Take the UNDER!
|01-02-20||Jazz v. Bulls +4||102-98||Push||0||11 h 7 m||Show|
4* NBA - Sharp Money HEAVY HITTER on Bulls +4 -109
I really like the value here with Chicago as a home dog against the Jazz. The Bulls have been an absolute money-maker over the last month. Chicago is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games and have covered 7 of their last 9 as an underdog.
Bulls do come into this game off an ugly 123-102 home loss to the Bucks, but that's actually a big positive here, as they are a perfect 8-0 ATS last 8 times they have been coming off a loss. Jazz have won 8 of 9, but it's come against a very favorable run in their schedule. Utah is still a mere 8-9 on the road this season.
Jazz won 104-81 at home against Detroit in their most recent game, but that's also a positive for us, as Utah is a mere 1-5 ATS in their last 6 off a SU win by more than 10 points. Take Chicago!
|01-02-20||Troy State +4 v. Louisiana-Monroe||Top||63-79||Loss||-110||11 h 19 m||Show|
5* NCAAB - Sun Belt PLAY OF THE MONTH on Troy State +4 -110
Absolutely love the value here with the Trojans as a road dog against ULM. While both teams come in with similarly poor records, Troy is 4-2 over their last 6 and working on a 5-1 ATS run.
Warhawks have lost 5 straight and their 4 wins this season have come against the likes of Louisiana College, Alcorn State, Northwestern St and Millsaps College. Two of those games didn't have a line and the other two they were double-digit favorites.
No way should ULM be favored here. Warhawks are a mere 1-5 ATS last 6 home games and 0-5 ATS last 5 as a favorite. Trojans are also 7-3 ATS last 10 games when listed as a dog. Take Troy!
|01-02-20||Nuggets v. Pacers -1||124-116||Loss||-109||10 h 57 m||Show|
4* NBA - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on Pacers -1 -109
This is just too good a price to pass up with Indiana at home. The Pacers have been outstanding on their home floor this season with a 15-3 SU mark. They are outscoring opponents at home by 7.3 ppg and just won in a very similar spot in their last game, beating the 76ers 115-97 as a mere 3.5-point home favorite.
Denver is just getting too much love here, especially with how they have been playing. While the Nuggets are 9-2 in their last 10, they are just 2-2 in their last 4 and off a ugly 130-104 loss at Houston. They are also a mere 1-6-2 ATS in their last 9 games.
Denver is also 1-6-2 ATS last 9 road games vs a team with a winning record and have not covered any of their last 5 games when coming off a loss by 10 or more. Pacers are 5-1 ATS last 6 as a favorite and 5-1 ATS last 6 at home. Take Indiana!
|01-02-20||Georgia State v. Appalachian State -2||69-60||Loss||-110||8 h 34 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Appalachian State -2 -110
Really like the value here with the Mountaineers at basically a pick'em on their home floor against the Panthers. For starters, this is a great buy low spot on Appalachian State coming off a 12-point loss to NC State.
The Mountaineers have thrived in this spot, going 12-2 ATS last 14 times after a loss by 10 or more points. App State had also been playing well prior to the setback, as they had won their previous 4 games. Mountaineers are 22-10 ATS last 32 at home when they come in having won 4 of 5.
Georgia State is off to a strong 9-4 start and are 8-1 in their last 9 games, but are in a tough scheduling spot playing on just 2 days of rest. Mountaineers are 4-0 ATS last 4 as a favorite and 4-0 ATS last 4 vs a team with a winning record. Take Appalachian State!
|01-02-20||Georgia Southern v. Coastal Carolina -1.5||70-67||Loss||-110||7 h 28 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - Vegas ATS LINE MISTAKE on Coastal Carolina -1½ -110
The books have completely missed the mark in this one. These two teams come in with identical records, but are simply not giving the Chanticleers the kind of respect they deserve at home, especially with how much worse the Eagles have been on the road. Georgia Southern is a perfect 6-0 at home, but are just 2-5 on the road.
Coastal Carolina is also playing well with 5 wins over their last 6 games and a 3-1 ATS mark in their last 4. Chanticleers should have their way on the offensive end in this one. They are averaging 82 ppg and shooting 47.3% from the field. They will facing an Eagles defense that has an effective field goal percentage of 53.4% (295th) on the defensive end.
Chanticleers are a dominant 20-9-1 ATS last 30 games off a SU win, while the Eagles are 1-5 ATS last 6 as a road dog and 0-4 ATS last 4 on the road vs a team with a winning home record. Take Coastal Carolina!

5* NCAAB - Late Night NO LIMIT Top Play on New Mexico -10 -110
I love the Lobos winning by double-digits and covering the spread on the road against the Spartans. This is a complete mismatch in terms of talent. New Mexico is 13-2 and come into this one having won 8 straight. San Jose State is a mere 4-10 and are 1-8 in their last 9 games.
Spartans really don't do anything well. They are shooting a worthless 39.3% from the field on offense and are allowing opponents to shoot 45% from the field. New Mexico is 17-6 ATS in their last 23 against teams that are shooting 42% or worse and allowing 45% or better.
San Jose State did cover in a home win over Pepperdine in their last game, but that's a positive here, as the Spartans are 0-6 ATS last 6 home games off a cover and 1-10 ATS last 11 overall off a cover in general. Take New Mexico!
|01-01-20||Blazers v. Knicks +4||93-117||Win||100||9 h 40 m||Show|
3* NBA - Vegas Undervalued UNDERDOG on Knicks +4 -105
I really like the value here with the Knicks as a home dog against the Blazers. New York has really improved over the last 3+ weeks. They are 5-4 in their last 9 games after starting the season 4-20. They have covered 6 of their last 9 games and I like them to win this one outright.
Portland has lost 4 straight and it just keeps getting worse for the Blazers. After really dominating the Suns for 3 quarters in their last game they got outscored 39-27 in the 4th to lose 116-122. I just don't trust the Blazers on a mere 1-day of rest after having to travel clear across the country (nearly 3,000 miles) for this game, especially with it being over New Years.
Blazers are a mere 1-10 ATS last 11 games after a contest with a combined score of 235 or more and the Knicks are 12-2 ATS last 14 at home after winning 2 of their last 3 games. Take New York!
|01-01-20||Connecticut +3 v. Cincinnati||51-67||Loss||-109||17 h 44 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Connecticut +3 -109
The Huskies are worth a look here as a small road dog against the Bearcats. Cincinnati is just getting a little too much love here at home. Bearcats have lost 3 of their last 4, including an ugly home loss to Colgate as a 12.5-point favorite.
Not to mention Cincinnati has been one of the worst bets in the country early on, as the Bearcats are 3-9 ATS. It's the exact opposite for Connecticut. Huskies come in having won 3 straight and 8 of their last 10. They are also a dominant 9-3 ATS on the season, including a 3-1 ATS mark away from home.
Turnovers should be a key part in the Huskies cover here. UConn ranks 28th in defensive turnover rate, while the Bearcats are 238th in offensive turnover rate (average 15 turnovers/game).
There's also a great system here favoring the Huskies. Road teams off 3 or more consecutive home wins with a line of +3 to -3 are a dominant 97-52 (65%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. Take UConn!
|01-01-20||South Dakota -1 v. IUPU Ft Wayne||59-70||Loss||-111||13 h 45 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - Vegas ATS Line MISTAKE on South Dakota -1 -111
The Coyotes are worth a look here at basically a pick'em on the road against IUPU-Ft Wayne. I just feel we are getting value with South Dakota due to the fact that they come in off 3 straight losses as a favorite.
The recent struggles for the Coyotes can be pinpointed to the absence of starting point guard Triston Simpson. He had missed 7 games before returning for their last contest. He just had a bad first game back going 3 of 14 from the field. He should be much better in game two.
South Dakota is 13-4 ATS last 17 after playing 3 straight games as a favorite. Mastodons are just 2-5-1 ATS last 8 off a loss and 2-5-2 ATS last 9 as an underdog. Simply put the Coyotes should be laying a much bigger number here. Take South Dakota!

5* NBA - Western Conf PLAY OF THE MONTH on Kings +7 -105
I love the value here with Sacramento as a big home dog against the Clippers. Kings are going to get up for this one against what many consider to be one of the favorites to win it all. Sacramento is also trying desperately to put an end to their losing streak which is up to 7 games now.
Thing is the Kings have been so close in a number of these games during their skid. In fact, 5 have been decided by single-digits, including each of the last 4. Clippers are off a ugly 13-point loss at home to Utah and are just 3-4 in their last 7 games.
I think this will be a tough spot for LA to get up with it being New Year's Eve and them returning home after this game for 4 in a row. Clippers also won't have the services of Beverley and he's a guy that really ignites the energy of this team.
Kings are 18-8 ATS last 26 after a loss by 6 or more, 12-4 ATS last 16 off a cover and 9-1 ATS last 10 when off a road loss where they covered as a dog. Take Sacramento!

4* NCAAB - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on Air Force -4 -110
You have a 6-7 Air Force team that is laying a decent number against a 9-5 UC-Riverside squad, which tells you the records of these two are very misleading. I couldn't agree more with the books and actually see value here with the Falcons.
Air Force has simply played the tougher schedule and should have a big home court edge in this one, as the Highlanders are just 3-4 away from home and only scoring 61.3 ppg on the road. That inability to score on the road will be a problem against a Falcons team that is averaging 82.8 ppg and shooting 53% from the field on their home floor.
Riverside did have an upset win at Fresno State in their last game, but are a mere 2-10 ATS in their last 12 off an win as a dog and 0-6 ATS when off a win as a road dog. Falcons are 18-7 ATS last 25 as a home favorite of 3.5 to 6 points and 11-2 ATS in their last 13 when playing on 7 or more days of rest. Take Air Force!

3* NBA - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Hornets +7 -105
Charlotte is worth a look here as a decently priced home dog against the Celtics. Hornets come in having lost 5 straight, but we know we are going to get a big effort here at home against a team like Boston.
As for the Celtics, I think this is a real tough spot for Boston. Celtics have been all over the place of late. They were at Toronto last Wednesday for that Christmas Day matchup, got a day off before having to play back-to-back games at home and now have to travel to Charlotte on New Year's Even before heading right back home (next two days off). Real easy for the Celtics to just go through the motions in this one.
Hornets are a decent team to back when on a skid, as they are 22-10 ATS last 32 after 2 or more consecutive losses. Also, Underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points that are off 4 or more losses in the month of December are a strong 49-29 (63%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. Take Charlotte!

5* NCAAB - American Athletic PLAY OF THE MONTH on Temple -2 -109
I'll lay the short number with the Owls on the road against UCF. I just think the matchup here heavily favors Temple. The Owls are so good at forcing teams to beat them from outside the paint, as they just don't give up easy baskets inside. That's a big problem for the Knights, who just don't have a lot of shooting. UCF comes in shooting a mere 30.6% from deep.
Another thing is the Knights rely a lot on getting second chance points by attacking the offensive glass and defensive rebounding is a big strength and priority for the Owls. Temple's defense has also only gotten better with the recent insertion of Jake Forrester into the starting lineup.
Owls are also a great team to back away from home. Temple is 11-4-1 ATS last 16 on the road against a team with a winning road record. Knights are just 1-3-1 ATS last 5 at home vs a team with a winning road record. Take Temple!

3* NBA - Late Night BAILOUT BLOWOUT on Blazers -4 -109
Easy play here on Portland laying a really small price at home against the Suns. Blazers are coming off a hard fought 128-120 loss at home to Lakers, but were simply not happy with the result and it was their 3rd straight setback after they put together a 4-game winning streak.
I'm expecting a max effort here from Portland and I think that will be more than enough to take down what should be a tired Suns team that is playing their 3rd road game in a 4 day stretch. Phoenix did get an upset win at Sacramento in their last game, but only won by 2 and had lost 8 straight prior to the victory.
Blazers have only failed to cover once in their last 5 when laying points at home. Suns are just 1-6 ATS last 7 off a SU win and 1-9 in their last 10 off a win by 6 or less points. Take Portland!

5* NBA -Sharp Money PLAY OF THE MONTH on Jazz -9 -110
This is an easy play here on the Jazz, who should have no problem winning by double-digits at home against a depleted Pistons team. Detroit has 4 key contributors who won't suit up for this game in Blake Griffin, Reggie Jackson, Markieff Morris and Luke Kennard.
It would have been hard enough for the Pistons to keep this close if they were full strength. They had the services of Griffin in their last game at San Antonio, but still managed to lose that game 136-109. Detroit's only win in their last 7 games is against a bad Wizards team at home. All 6 losses have been by 11 or more points.
Utah is also coming in playing some of their best basketball. Jazz have won 7 of their last 8, including a 120-107 win at the Clippers last time out as a 7-point dog. Take Utah!
|12-30-19||George Mason v. TCU -8.5||53-87||Win||100||21 h 31 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS ANNIHILATOR on TCU -8½ -110
The Horned Frogs should have no problem winning by double-digits at home against the Patriots. George Mason comes in at 11-1 and it's simply got them getting way to much respect against a superior opponent. The Patriots impressive start is a direct result of them playing the 327th ranked strength of schedule. Their only game against a team ranked inside the Top 100 in KenPom was vs Maryland and they lost by 23.
Another reason we are getting value is the fact that while TCU is a respectable 8-3 to start the year, they have gone just 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games. There's nothing wrong with their 3 losses, as they have come against the likes of Clemson, USC and Xavier. All 3 coming by 8 or fewer points.
Once the Horned Frogs starting hit their shots they are going to be a real tough out in the Big 12 and with this being their final tune-up before conference play I think we see them lay it on the Patriots. Take TCU!
|12-30-19||St Bonaventure v. Buffalo UNDER 145.5||79-84||Loss||-110||21 h 44 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - Over/Under Total DESTROYER on St Bonaventure/Buffalo under 145½ -110
I really like the value here with the UNDER in Monday's matchup between Buffalo and St. Bonaventure. The Bonnies are rolling right now, as they have won 7 straight and their defense has been a big part of their success.
Only once during this stretch has St Bonaventure given up more than 65 points, so while the Bulls are scoring 80.6 ppg, I don't see them coming anywhere close to that. Buffalo will find it really tough scoring inside. Bulls have an undersized frontline and will be facing one of the best interior defenders in the country in Osun Osunniyi.
I know Buffalo's defense has had their lapses, but the Bonnies are from an offensive juggernaut. In fact, they only average 67.7 ppg.
UNDER is 18-4 in the Bulls last 22 home games after scoring 80 or more points in 2 straight games and 6-0 in their last 6 at home off a blowout win by 20 or more. UNDER is also 11-3 in the Bonnies last 14 road games and 6-0 in their last 6 as a road dog of 3 or less. Take the UNDER!

5* NCAAB - Vegas NO LIMIT Top Play on Illinois-Chicago -3½ -110
I love the value here with the Flames laying a short number at home against the Penguins. UIC has won each of their last two games and are in a great buy low spot, as they just recently got back one of their top scorers in Marcus Ottey. He's played in just the last 4 games and scored double-figures in all 4.
It's also worth noting that while the Flames are just 6-8 overall, they have had 3 losses by 4 or fewer points. Youngstown State is getting some love after covering 4 straight, but this is not an ideal spot for the Penguins are who will be forced to play their second road game in a mere 3 days.
Youngstown State is just 1-4-1 ATS last 6 on the road and are losing be close to 10 ppg on average away from home this season. Take Illinois-Chicago!
|12-29-19||Rockets v. Pelicans +5||112-127||Win||100||11 h 3 m||Show|
4* NBA - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on Pelicans +5 -110
The Pelicans are definitely worth a look here as a home dog against the Rockets. Houston is not going to be at full strength for this one. Russell Westbrook is sitting out (rest) in the second game of a back-to-back and they may also be without big man Clint Capela (questionable).
Either way I like New Orleans to keep this real close and likely win outright. Pelicans have really got things going of late. NO comes in having won 3 in a row and are 4-1 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games, which includes 3 outright wins as a dog.
Rockets are a mere 3-7 ATS last 10 games as a favorite and 4-12 ATS last 16 on the road vs a team that's won fewer than 40% of their home games. Pelicans are also 35-17 ATS last 52 at home vs a team that's won more than 60% of their road games. Take New Orleans!

3* NBA - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Raptors -2½ -109
I really like the value here with the Raptors at basically a pick'em at home against the Thunder. I just feel like the books have over adjusted this line because Toronto is playing on no rest after a game in Boston last night. Raptors won that one without much trouble and had two days off before that game, so I don't think the no rest is a big deal.
Plus the Raptors are 13-4 at home and while OKC has been playing better of late, they are still a miserable 5-9 on the road. If anything the Thunder are going to be the tired team, as they are playing on the road in what will be their 3rd game in 4 nights.
Raptors are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games vs a team with a losing road record, 13-5 ATS last 18 when playing on no rest and 4-1 ATS last 5 as a favorite. Take Toronto!
|12-29-19||Arkansas v. Indiana -5||71-64||Loss||-110||7 h 39 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - Vegas Oddsmakers LINE MISTAKE on Indiana -5 -110
I really like the value here with Indiana as a small home favorite against the Razorbacks. While both teams come in with just 1 loss on the season, I've been way more impressed with Indiana's resume. Arkansas has only played one team inside the KenPom top 100 and that 93rd ranked Western Kentucky.
Razorbacks were fortunate to get a win last time out as they trailed by 5 against Valpo last before squeaking out a 72-68 victory. Indiana's only loss is at Wisconsin. They are 9-0 at home and one of those was a 16-point win over a good FSU team.
Hoosiers have done an excellent job scoring in the paint and are one of the best in the country at getting to the free throw line (averaging 20 made free throws per game). I just don't think the Razorbacks are built to slow them down and wouldn't be shocked if this thing turned into a blowout. Take Indiana!
|12-29-19||Rhode Island v. Middle Tennessee +6.5||89-62||Loss||-110||5 h 19 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Sharp Money ATS HEAVY HITTER on Middle Tennessee +6½ -110
Easy play here with the Blue Raiders catching what I feel is a big number at home against Rhode Island. This is a big flat spot for Rhode Island coming out of their Christmas break on the road after a lengthy layoff against a hungry Middle Tennessee team. One in which they might have a hard time getting up with the Blue Raiders just 4-9 overall and a mere 1-8 in their last 9.
Last time out Middle Tennessee nearly won outright as a 4-point dog against St Bonaventure, falling to the Bonnies by a final score of 66-65. That's worth noting, as the Blue Raiders are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 home games after playing their previous game as a home dog. Rhode Island is also just 1-4 ATS last 5 as a favorite. Take Middle Tennessee!

4* NBA - Late Night Total NO-BRAINER on Suns/Kings under 222 -110
I really like the value here with the UNDER in Saturday's NBA matchup that has the Kings hosting the Suns. Just went Sacramento was starting to pick up the pace with De'Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley back from injuries, both players are hurt once again and out for this game.
Kings are going to have to go back to slowing things down and Phoenix figures to be looking to slow the pace as well, as they will be in the second game of a back-to-back set after playing last night in Golden State.
UNDER is 15-5 in the Suns last 20 road games against division opponents and 21-9 in the Kings last 30 at home when playing only their 2nd game in a 5 day stretch. Take the UNDER 222!

5* NCAAB - Vegas NO LIMIT Top Play on Northern Arizona +7½ -110
I love the value here with Northern Arizona as a near double-digit dog at Montana. The Lumberjacks come into this game at 6-3 and have covered 4 straight, while the Grizzlies are a mere 4-7 and 3-6 in their last 9.
Montana is a mere 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and are just 1-5 ATS last 6 games vs a team with a winning record. Grizzlies come in scoring just 64.8 ppg and are shooting just 425 from the field and 29% from long distance.
Northern Arizona averages 75.6 ppg and one thing I love about the Lumberjacks is how they get to the free throw line. They are one of the best in the country at doing so and Montana is one of the worst at sending opponents to the charity line. Grizzlies opponents are averaging 15 made free throws a game against them.
Lumberjacks are 5-1 ATS last 6 times they have been listed as a road dog. Also underdogs with a winning record who have beaten the spread by 30 or more points in their last 3 games and playing a team with a losing record are 23-7 (77%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. Take Northern Arizona!

3* NBA - Vegas Undervalued DOG OF THE DAY on Hawks +10 -110
I like the value here with Atlanta as a double-digit dog against the Bulls. I just think we are seeing Chicago get a little too much love due to the fact the Hawks won't have the services of their best player in Trea Young.
However, the Bulls could be missing two of their top players, as both Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr are listed as questionable. Chicago is also a team that simply can't be trusted to lay this kind of number against any team.
Especially at home. Bulls are just 14-30 ATS last 44 home games. They are also a mere 5-13 ATS last 18 times they have played at home against a team that's won fewer than 40% of their road games. Hawks are 6-2 ATS last 8 off a loss by 10 or more and 30-16 ATS last 46 as an underdog of 10 or more. Take Atlanta!

3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Delaware -11½ -110
Easy play here on the Blue Hens laying double-digits at home against the Seahawks. These two teams have played almost the same strength of schedule, yet Delaware is sitting at 10-3 and Wilmington is a mere 5-8.
Even more important here is the home/away splits. The Blue Hens are a perfect 6-0 at home where they are scoring 78.8 ppg. The Seahawks are 1-5 away from home and scoring a miserable 57.8 ppg on the road this season. Delaware has one of the best scorers in the country in Nate Darling, who is currently 16th in the nation at 21.4 ppg.
Wilmington is a mere 2-8-3 ATS in their last 13 road games and 1-7-3 ATS last 11 as a road dog. Take Delaware!
|12-28-19||Northern Colorado v. Portland State +3||65-69||Win||100||7 h 15 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on Portland State +3 -115
Easy play here on the Vikings as a home dog against Northern Colorado. Portland State is 3-1 on their home floor and have won 3 of their last 4 overall, including a 76-66 win last time out at Loyola-Marymount as a 3.5-point dog. Covering has not been a problem for the Vikings, who are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games.
The Bears come in having won 4 straight, but that's actually a positive here, as Northern Colorado is a mere 3-12 ATS in their last 15 road games when they come in having won 4 or more games in a row.
Look for the Vikings to torment the Bears on the offensive glass. Northern Colorado is vulnerable in that department and Portland State ranks 6th in the country in offensive rebounding percentage. Vikings are also 9-2 ATS last 11 games at home and 7-0-1 ATS last 8 games played on Saturday. Take Portland State!

5* NBA - Vegas No Limit PLAY OF THE MONTH on 76ers -2½ -110
I think the books have made a huge mistake here with the 76ers basically at a pick'em on the road against the Magic. I get Philadelphia has had their struggles on the road and are coming off a massive win over the Bucks on Christmas Day, but I just don't see them having much trouble with Orlando.
It would be one thing if the Magic were playing well, but they are just 2-6 over their last 8 games and only covered twice in their last 7 games. Not to mention Orlando is a mere 5-15 ATS in their last 20 home games in the month of December and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games as an underdog.
Another key thing here is revenge. Magic embarrassed the 76ers 112-97 at home back in November. That actually sets up a very profitable system on Philadelphia. Favorites revenging a road loss of 10 or more and off a home win by 10 or more are 62-28 (69%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. Take Philadelphia!
|12-26-19||Wolves v. Kings -4||105-104||Loss||-110||12 h 20 m||Show|
4* NBA - Late Night ATS HEAVY HITTER on Kings -4 -110
Sacramento is definitely worth a look here laying a short number at home against the slumping Timberwolves. Minnesota comes into this game having lost 11 straight and may once again be without big man Karl-Anthony Towns, who has missed the last 4 and is listed as questionable.
Either way the Timberwolves can't be trusted as a small road dog and this Kings team is one that I think is one to watch out for. While Sacramento has lost all 4 games since De'Aaron Fox returned from injury, he's shown flashes of being 100% back. He had a career-high 31 points in their most recent loss to the Rockets.
Minnesota is 1-6-1 ATS last 8 as an underdog, 1-5-1 ATS last 7 on the road and 0-6-1 ATS last 7 games vs a team with a losing record. Take Sacramento!
|12-26-19||Knicks v. Nets -7||94-82||Loss||-109||15 h 11 m||Show|
4* NBA - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on Nets -7 -109
I got no problem laying the points with Brooklyn at home against the Knicks. The Nets continue to play without Kyrie Irving, but have done just fine without him. If anything, it's had Brooklyn repeatedly showing great value in his absence.
Nets have won 12 of 18 with Irving sidelined and are 12-6 ATS in their last 18 games, including a sizzling 8-3 ATS run over their last 11. The Knicks showed some life after making a coaching change, but reverted right back to their losing ways with 3 straight losses and 3 non-covers in their last 3 games.
New York simply doesn't have the talent to win many games, especially with their opponent motivated, which Brooklyn should be having had 4 days off. Defense is also a big problem for the Knicks, as they are giving up 112.7 ppg on the season and 120.8 ppg in their last 5. Knicks two most recent losses were at home and they are just 2-12 ATS last 14 after 2 straight home defeats. Take Brooklyn!

4* NCAAB - Situational ATS HEAVY HITTER on Hawaii +3 -110
The Rainbow Warriors are definitely worth a look here as a small home dog against the Yellow Jackets in their Christmas Day matchup in the Diamond Head Classic. Hawaii has such a huge advantage here with this game being played at home, especially with both teams playing their 3rd game in 4 nights.
Rainbow Warriors have gone 8-1 SU at home this season, while the Yellow Jackets are just 5-6 overall and 2-3 away from home. In Hawaii's last game they lost to No. 21 Washington by just 11-points and that was with their leading scorer, Eddie Stansberry, scoring just 5 points on a dreadful 1-17 shooting (all 3-pointers).
Georgia Tech is a mere 4-9 ATS last 13 times they have been listed as a road favorite. Rainbow Warriors are 8-3 ATS last 11 off a SU loss and 6-2 ATS last 8 off a double-digit loss at home. Take Hawaii!

5* NBA - Christmas Day GAME OF THE YEAR on 76ers +3½ -105
I absolutely love the value here with Philadelphia as a home dog against the Bucks. As difficult as it may be to bet against Milwaukee right now, I just think the price is too good with the 76ers as a home dog.
I really think Philadelphia is going to win this game. The 76ers definitely have the talent to go toe to toe with the Bucks, but more importantly they have the size to give Milwaukee trouble. Not to mention the 76ers have one of the league's best home court advantages. Philadelphia is 15-2 SU at home, where they are outscoring teams by 9.7 ppg.
76ers are 26-9 ATS last 35 at home against a team that's won more than 60% of their road games and 4-1 ATS last 5 as a home dog. Bucks on the other hand are just 3-7 ATS last 10 on the road vs a team that's won more than 60% of their home games. Take Philadelphia!

4* NBA - Celtics/Raptors VEGAS INSIDER on Raptors +3½ -105
I'll gladly take my chances here with Toronto as a home dog against the Celtics in the first of five NBA games on Christmas Day. The Raptors are going to be without one of their best players in Pascal Siakam, which on paper looks like a big blow given that Siakam leads the team in scoring at 25.1 ppg.
However, he's missed the last 3 and Toronto has not missed a beat. Raptors secured wins over both the Wizards and Mavs at home before losing in overtime at Indiana against a red-hot Pacers team. Boston comes in having won 3 straight and are 7-2 over their last 9, but are just the same team on the road as they are at home.
Celtics are just 8-6 on the road compared to 12-1 at home. Toronto on the other hand is a dominant 13-3 at home this season. Raptors don't just win at home, they are 15-6-1 ATS last 21 at home and are 5-1-2 ATS last 8 times they have been listed as a home dog. Take Toronto!

This is just too good a price to pass up with New Orleans. It's been a really rough go of things for New Orleans to start out the season, but they have shown some signs of turning the corner. They snapped their 13-game skid with a win at Minnesota last week and each of their last two losses have come by 7 or fewer points.
Portland has won 4 straight, but it's nothing to get all that excited about. Their 4 wins have come against the Suns, Warriors, Magic and Timberwolves. Their win over Phoenix came with the Suns missing Booker and was before Ayton returned. Golden State is garbage, Orlando was playing their 3rd road game in 4 days and Minnesota was without Towns. Take New Orleans!

4* NBA - Sharp Money ATS HEAVY HITTER on Jazz +5 -110
I like the value here with Utah as a decently priced road dog against the Heat. The Jazz come in having won 5 in a row and are finally figuring out how to close out games. Utah will be without starting point guard Mike Conley, but they posted one of their better offensive performances without him in their last game and have scored 109 or more in all 5 wins.
Utah is also well rested. This will be just their 4th game since Dec. 13th. It's been a very profitable spot to back the Jazz, as they are 29-13 (69%) when playing 4 or less games in a 10 day stretch. Take Utah!

4* NBA - Situational ATS VEGAS INSIDER on Hawks +1½ -105
I really like the value here with Atlanta getting points on the road against the Cavs. Cleveland just can't be trusted laying points. Just two games ago they failed to cover as a mere 2.5-point favorite against the Hornets.
Any time the Cavs get matched up against another bad team they tend to underperform. Cleveland is a mere 21-48 ATS last 69 at home against a team with a losing road record. They are also just 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games overall.
Also, Hawks should be getting a big boost here with the return of John Collins from his 25-game suspension. In the 5 games Hollins played he averaged 17.0 ppg, 8.8 rpg and 2.0 blocks. Take Atlanta!

4* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS ANNIHILATOR on Seattle University -5 -109
The Redhawks are definitely worth a look here as a small home favorite against the 49ers. Big bounce back spot for Seattle after they were embarrassed on their home floor by Florida A&M as a 13.5-point favorite. I still like what I've seen overall from the 49ers and this Long Beach State team is one they can handle with ease.
49ers have played 8 of their first 13 games on the road and are 1-7 and getting outscored by 15.8 ppg. It's almost the exact opposite for Seattle, who even after that loss to Florida A&M are still outscoring teams at home 81.8 to 67.5 ppg. You have one team that is scoring 80+ games at home and one giving up 80+ ppg on the road. I just don't think the number here has been set high enough. Take Seattle!
|12-22-19||Nuggets +7 v. Lakers||128-104||Win||100||12 h 19 m||Show|
4* NBA - LATE NIGHT ATS DESTROYER on Nuggets +7 -105
Big time value here with Denver here as a near double-digit dog against the Lakers. I just think LA is being way overpriced in this spot, as the perception is that with the Lakers coming off back-to-back losses there's no way they can lose 3 straight. They might not, but winning by 8 or more against a really good Denver team is asking a lot.
Note that the Nuggets are coming in playing some of their best ball, as they have won 5 straight. Lakers are also a mere 3-7 ATS last 10 home games vs a team with a winning road record and are 1-4 ATS last 5 games vs a team that's won more than 60% of their games. Take Denver!
|12-22-19||Pacers +8 v. Bucks||89-117||Loss||-115||10 h 53 m||Show|
4* NBA - Central Div PLAY OF THE WEEK on Pacers +8 -115
I like the value here with Indiana catching a big number on the road against the Bucks. As difficult as it is to bet against Milwaukee with how well they have been playing, I just think the price is too good to pass up with the Pacers in this spot.
This is definitely a good spot to fade the Bucks, as they will be playing on no rest after a game yesterday in New York. It's also their 3rd game in 4 days. Indiana on the other hand is well rested playing just their 2nd game in the last 5 days. Pacers are also coming in having won and covered 5 straight games.
Lastly, home favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points who are off two straight covers as a favorite are just 8-25 (24%) ATS if facing an opponent off a home win where they scored 110 or more points. Take Indiana!

4* NCAAB - Underdog ATS HEAVY HITTER on Florida Atlantic +3½ -107
The Owls are worth a look here as a small road dog against the Bears. I just think we are seeing Mercer get a little too much love off their close call and cover at home against Furman last time out. Bears are still just 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games.
FAU comes in having won 3 straight and are 5-1 over their last 6. Owls have a really good player in Jailyn Ingram who seems to be getting better and better as the season progresses. FAU has the better offensive and better defensive numbers and I'm confident they win this game outright.
Mercer is a mere 1-8 ATS last 9 home games off a straight up loss, 3-7 ATS last 10 home games overall and 1-8 ATS last 9 vs a team with a winning record. Take FAU!

5* NCAAB - Vegas NO LIMIT Top Play on New Mexico State +5½ -110
I absolutely love the value here with the Aggies as a road dog against the Bulldogs. Mississippi State comes in at 8-2, but a big reason for that is the schedule. The Bulldogs best win is a neutral site victory against Kansas State. They just struggled to put away Radford in their last game and recently lost at home to Louisiana Tech.
New Mexico State has gone just 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games, but are off a win and cover against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Aggies debuted UTEP transfer Evan Gilyard in that game and A.J. Harris, who has been out all year could be back for this one.
Also, I like the matchup here. Aggies are really good at forcing their opponents into making mistakes. They are averaging 15 forced turnovers a game and Mississippi State ranks 327th in turnover rate. New Mexico State is also a great offensive rebounding team (32nd nationally) and Bulldogs rank a mere 232nd in defensive rebound rate.
Mississippi State is also just 3-12 ATS last 15 times they come into a game having won 2 of their last 3. Take New Mexico State!

4* NCAAB - CS Bakersfield/Cal Poly ATS Winner on CS Bakersfield -2½ -109
I like the value here with CS-Bakersfield as a small road favorite against Cal Poly. Neither team is all that great, but I do give the edge here to the Roadrunners. A big reason for that is they should dominate the glass. Bakersfield ranks 15th in offensive rebound rate and 45th on defense. Cal Poly is one of the worst teams in the country on the board.
The Mustangs also can't score and don't exactly defend all that great either Cal Poly is scoring just 63.6 ppg and giving up 72.3 ppg. Mustangs are 0-8 ATS last 8 home games when they come in having lost 3 of their last 4 and just 2-9 ATS last 2 seasons at home. Take CS-Bakersfield!

4* NBA - Prime Time ATS NO-BRAINER on Spurs +6 -109
I like the value here with the Spurs getting a decent number at home against the Clippers. With LA coming off that meltdown at home to the Rockets on Thursday, I think a lot of people are just expecting the Clippers to bounce back with a big effort here. While they are likely to play hard, I don't think they are just going to run over the Spurs.
San Antonio has been playing much better of late with 4 wins in their last 6 and could have easily won both games they lost, especially a 2-point setback at Houston where they had a 25-point lead. Spurs won't be intimidated by LA, as they already knocked off the Clippers at home 107-97 earlier this season.
Spurs are 16-5 ATS last 21 home games in the month of December and 9-2 ATS last 11 times they have been a home dog. Take San Antonio!
|12-21-19||Arkansas-Little Rock v. UL - Lafayette +2.5||69-66||Loss||-110||9 h 37 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - Lafayette/Little Rock ATS Winner on UL - Lafayette +2½ -110
I'll take the Ragin' Cajuns and the points as they get ready to host Little Rock Saturday night. I just don't think Lafayette should be getting points at home. Little-Rock has won their last t2, but failed to cover as a 3.5-point favorite in a mere 1-point win at ULM on Thursday and now must play another road game on just 1-day of rest.
Ragin' Cajuns have lost their last 3, but all 3 of those were true road games. Lafayette is a perfect 4-0 at home where they are absolutely lighting up the scoreboard with 87.7 ppg on 49% shooting. Little Rock only scored 65.0 ppg away from home and I just don't see them keeping pace in this one.
Little Rock is 5-14 ATS last 19 conference games and Ragin Cajuns are 13-4 ATS last 17 off a loss by 10 or more. Take Lafayette!
|12-21-19||Eastern Illinois v. Grand Canyon -2.5||63-85||Win||100||8 h 21 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - E Illinois/Grand Canyon ATS Winner on Grand Canyon -2½ -110
I like the value here with the Antelopes as a small home favorite against the Panthers. Good spot here to jump on Grand Canyon at home after losing their last 3. No real shocker that they did as they came against better teams in Liberty, Northern Iowa and New Mexico.
Key here is the bad spot for Eastern Illinois, who will be playing their 3rd straight road game in a week span. They are also coming off a max effort against rival Western Illinois, making them prime for a letdown. Eastern Illinois is also just 14-29 ATS last 43 after covering 3 straight. Take Grand Canyon!
|12-21-19||St Bonaventure -3.5 v. Middle Tennessee||66-65||Loss||-105||5 h 21 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on St Bonaventure -3½ -105
Easy play here on the Bonnies as a small road favorite against the Blue Raiders. St Bonaventure has been on an absolute tear of late. Bonnies come in having won 6 straight and are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 lined games.
It's the exact opposite for Middle Tennessee, who has lost 7 of their last 8 and are a dreadful 0-7 ATS in this stretch. Every loss in this poor run has come by double-digits. Blue Raiders are scoring 75.2 ppg, which looks good, but is actually less than what their opponents have given up on average. I just think they will have a real tough time scoring here against a St Bonaventure defense that is holding opponents to 61.8 ppg, 40% from the field and 30% from deep. Take St Bonaventure!
|12-21-19||North Carolina v. UCLA +4.5||74-64||Loss||-109||5 h 18 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Sharp Money ATS HEAVY HITTER on UCLA +4½ -109
I really like the value here with UCLA getting points against the Tar Heels in their neutral site showdown in Las Vegas. This is just as bad a North Carolina team as I can remember and things have really took a turn for the worse with star freshman Cole Anthony sidelined. Tar Heels have lost 4 straight and 5 of 6 overall.
I get the Bruins haven't been all that impressive in their own right, but I do feel like they are the better team. I also think they got an edge here having not played in a week, while UNC is a long way from home and playing on just 2 days rest after laying it all on the line at Gonzaga Wednesday.
Tar Heels just keep getting overvalued by the books because of how big a name they are. UNC is a mere 1-7 ATS in games where they are listed as the favorite and 0-4 ATS off a cover. Take UCLA!
|12-21-19||Fairfield +7 v. Oakland||61-59||Win||100||4 h 23 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Fairfield +7 -110
The Stags are definitely worth a look at this price in Saturday's matchup at Oakland. Fairfield comes into this game with a less than impressive 2-7 SU record and I think it has them showing value.
The Stags are really unlucky to be sitting here with just 2 wins. Only one of their 7 losses have come by more than 11 points and 3 have been by 4 or fewer. They not only capable of covering here against Oakland, but winning this game outright. The Golden Grizzlies have lost 5 of 6 and have to be running on fumes after playing 6 straight away from home.
Also both of these teams have played at Maryland and while both lost, the Stags lost by just 19, while the Golden Grizzlies fell by 30. Take Fairfield!
|12-21-19||Illinois v. Missouri +4.5||56-63||Win||100||3 h 28 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Illinois/Missouri ATS Winner on Missouri +4½ -110
I like Missouri at this price as they get ready to take on Illinois at the Scottrade Center in St Louis. The Tigers really need this game to boost their non-conference resume, as they have came up short in their other big games against Xavier, Butler and Oklahoma.
Missouri has won and covered each of their last two, so they come in with some momentum. Illinois has gotten off to a strong 8-3 start with a big home win over Michigan, but their only win away from home against Grand Canyon and even that was a less than impressive showing.
Favorite has covered just once in the last 5 meetings between these two teams and Neutral court favorites who are averaging 78+ ppg and facing a team that scores 63-67 ppg are just 10-33 ATS (23%) if off a game where they held an opponent to 55 or less. Take Missouri!
|12-21-19||Kansas v. Villanova +2||Top||55-56||Win||100||13 h 5 m||Show|
5* NCAAB - Vegas NO LIMIT Top Play on Villanova +2 -109
I really like the value here with the Wildcats as a home dog against Kansas. The Jayhawks might be the No. 1 team in the country, but it's been a bit of a revolving door at the top of the college basketball landscape. I just think it has Kansas getting a little to much love here at No. 18 Villanova.
The Wildcats only two losses have come against the likes of Ohio State and Baylor and both of those were on the road. Villanova is 4-0 at home, where they are scoring 84.5 ppg and giving up just 62.2 ppg. This is also the first real test for KU in a true road game and I think it can be a bit of a challenge to go this deep in the season having not played in a real hostile environment.
Jayhawks are a mere 2-10 ATS last 2 seasons in road games and the Wildcats are 33-17 ATS last 3 seasons when playing a top tier team that's outscoring opponents by 4+ points/game. Take Villanova!
|12-20-19||Mavs +8.5 v. 76ers||117-98||Win||100||14 h 1 m||Show|
3* NBA - Vegas Oddsmakers LINE MISTAKE on Mavs +8½ -109
I like the value here with the Mavs as a near double-digit dog against the 76ers. Luka Doncic did travel with the team to Philadelphia, but he's unlikely to play. However, Dallas has shown they are more than capable of competing against the top teams without him. In the two games he's missed they have won at Milwaukee and lost by just 6 to the Celtics.
76ers just lost at home to the Heat as a 9-point favorite and have been one of the more overvalued teams over the last month and a half. Going back to Nov. 10 Philadelphia is 6-11-3 ATS. In comparison, Dallas is 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games.
Mavs are 12-3-2 ATS last 17 off a straight up loss and are 10-1 ATS last 11 road games vs a team that's won more than 60% of their home games. Take Dallas!
|12-20-19||Knicks +10.5 v. Heat||114-129||Loss||-115||10 h 52 m||Show|
3* NBA - Undervalued DOG OF THE DAY on Knicks +10½ -115
New York is definitely worth a look here as a double-digit dog against the Heat. Knicks have been a money maker since they fired head coach David Fizdale. They are 3-3 SU and 5-1 ATS since he was let go. That includes 3 straight covers on the road against the Warriors, Kings and Nuggets.
Winning at Miami won't be easy, but I like their chances of keeping this within 10-points. Heat could definitely struggle to get up for this game, as they are off a huge road win against the 76ers, which concluded a 3-game road trip.
Heat also got off to that great start and as a result the books are starting to overprice them, especially as a favorite. Miami is just 1-4 ATS last 10 when laying points. Take New York!
|12-20-19||Pistons v. Celtics -7||Top||93-114||Win||100||20 h 39 m||Show|
5* NBA - Eastern Conf PLAY OF THE MONTH on Celtics -7 -110
I got no problem laying the points with Boston at home against the Pistons. Celtics should have no problem winning here by double-digits against a struggling Detroit team that will not only be without Blake Griffin, but also Luke Kennard and Christian Wood.
Boston won't have Gordon Hayward but at this point they are accustomed to not having him. They also don't need him to put away this Pistons team. Celtics are also well rested playing just their 2nd game in the last 7 days and coming off a big momentum building win at Dallas where they rallied in the 2nd half for a 109-103 win.
Pistons have gone 3-14-1 ATS last 18 vs a team with a winning record, 1-7-1 ATS last 9 road games vs a team that's won more than 60% of their home games (Celtics are 10-1 at home) and 3-8 ATS last 11 off a double-digit loss at home. Take Boston!
|12-19-19||Portland State +5.5 v. Loyola Marymount||Top||76-66||Win||100||12 h 13 m||Show|
5* NCAAB - Small Conference PLAY OF THE MONTH on Portland State +5½ -111
Easy play here on the Vikings getting points against the Lions. I actually think Portland State is going to win this game outright, so this is really a no-brainer at this price. Loyola-Marymount has failed to cover their last two, including a mere 3-point win in their last home game against Prairie View A&M as a similarly priced 6-point favorite.
The Lions just aren't a team to be trusted to lay points. They don't play great defense and struggle to take care of the basketball. That could haunt them here against Portland State, which has had some success turning over the opposition. Vikings also are also a great offensive rebounding team and those second chances should pay off in this matchup.
Vikings are 15-6 ATS last 21 non-conference road games, while the Lions are a mere 3-7 ATS last 10 at home vs a team with a losing road record and 1-9 ATS last 10 at home against a team that's won fewer than 40% of their road games. Take Portland State!
|12-19-19||Nets v. Spurs -2.5||Top||105-118||Win||100||12 h 31 m||Show|
5* NBA - Non-Conference PLAY OF THE WEEK on Spurs -2½ -106
I absolutely love the value here with the Spurs at basically a pick'em at home against the Nets. This hasn't been anywhere close to the kind of start to the season that most expected for San Antonio and their latest 107-109 loss to Houston, where they blew a 25-point lead, speaks to the season they are having.
With that said, I do feel like there's some positives with building up a 25-point lead on the road against the Rockets. It could be a sign of them turning the corner. Had they won that would have been 4 out of their last 5.
With a full 2 days off before this game I think we get a big effort here from the Spurs. As for the Nets, they continue to play well without Kyrie, but a lot of that success has come against bad teams. This is also not an ideal scheduling spot playing on the road for the 3rd time in the last 6 days.
Spurs are 15-5 ATS last 20 games at home in the month of December and 21-9 ATS last 30 at home with a line of +3 to -3. Take San Antonio!
|12-19-19||Jazz -6 v. Hawks||111-106||Loss||-109||11 h 31 m||Show|
3* NBA - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Jazz -6 -109
The Jazz are definitely worth a look here at Atlanta tonight. Utah is just 5-8 away from home and I think that poor road record has them a bit undervalued in this one. Jazz have won 3 straight and will be motivated here to get their 3-game road trip started off with a win.
What I love is they don't even need to play their best to cover this number against the Hawks. Atlanta has the second worst record in the league at 6-22 and are just 2-16 over their last 22 games. Last time out the Hawks fell by 23 on the road to an awful Knicks team, marking their 6th double-digit setback in their last 7 losses.
Jazz have faired well against teams like Atlanta away from home, as they are 20-9 ATS last 29 on the road against bad defensive teams that are allowing opponents to shoot 46% or better from the field. They are also 13-3 ATS last 16 on the road with a total of 220 or more and 9-1 ATS last 10 on the road after 2 or more consecutive home wins. Take Utah!
|12-18-19||Celtics -1.5 v. Mavs||Top||109-103||Win||100||20 h 17 m||Show|
5* NBA - Heavy Hitter PLAY OF THE MONTH on Celtics -1½ -109
I absolutely love the Celtics here at basically a pick'em at Dallas. The Mavs shocked just about everyone in their last game, as they snapped the Bucks 18-game winning streak in Milwaukee without one of the best players in the league in Luka Doncic. Dallas won the game 120-116 as a 10-point dog.
Not to take anything away from that win, but you have to think some of that was Milwaukee not giving the Mavs the respect they deserved. They had to think they could just coast and beat Dallas without Doncic. On the flip side the Mavs were highly motivated to show they can win without their star.
Boston isn't going to make the same mistake here. In fact, the Celtics should be 100% locked in after losing their last two and being fully rested after having the last 5 days off. Boston is 8-2 ATS last 10 times they have played on 4 or more days of rest and are 11-2 ATS on the season vs a team with a winning record. Take Boston!
|12-18-19||VCU v. College of Charleston +6||Top||76-71||Win||100||10 h 41 m||Show|
5* NCAAB - Vegas NO LIMIT Top Play on College of Charleston +6 -109
I love the value here with the Cougars as a decently priced home dog against the Rams. VCU is the household name in this matchup and I think it has them laying a few to many in this one. Note the books have really been inflating the number on the Rams of late. VCU has failed to cover five straight and are just 2-8 ATS on the season. They are also 0-2 SU and 0-2 ATS on the road.
Charleston is off to a very respectable 5-5 start. A .500 record might not seem great, but they have played the likes of Oklahoma State, Marshall, UCF (twice), Wake Forest, Providence and Richmond. Most of those games they were very competitive.
Last year the Cougars went on the road and beat VCU 83-79 as a 5.5-point dog and what I like is they got the guards to handle this Rams pressure with 3 really good ball handlers in Galloway, Jasper and Riller.
Another thing here is the Rams have not shot the ball well in 2019 and are still missing one of their better outside shooters in Malik Crowfield. Not to mention the Cougars are holding opponents to 40% from the field at home. Take Charleston!
|12-18-19||DePaul v. Cleveland State +16||73-65||Win||101||10 h 39 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on Cleveland State +16 +101
I really like the value here with the Vikings as a massive home dog against DePaul. Not many people saw the Blue Demons being this good this early on in 2019. DePaul is off to an impressive 10-1 start, which includes a 7-3 ATS mark. However, we are far enough in that the betting public has caught on and now the books are really starting to inflate their price.
I also think this is a bit of a flat spot for the Blue Demons, as this is not a team they need their best effort against to get a win. It's their first road game in almost 3 weeks and they got a big matchup with Northwestern at home on Saturday.
Also worth noting that a lot of DePaul's ATS success has come in the role of a dog. Blue Demons are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite. They are also just 2-9 ATS last 11 when they come in having won 3 of their last 4. Take Cleveland State!
|12-17-19||Magic v. Jazz UNDER 208.5||102-109||Loss||-105||9 h 26 m||Show|
3* NBA - Over/Under Total DESTROYER on Magic/Jazz under 208½ -105
The UNDER is worth a look here in Tuesday's NBA action that has the Jazz hosting the Magic. These are two teams that like to play slow. Utah ranks 16th in pace of play and Orlando is way back at 26th.
Another thing here is I think we are going to get a big effort here from Utah on the defensive side of the ball, as they can't be happy about letting each of their last two opponents shoot over 53% from the field.
UNDER is also 14-3 in Orlando's last 17 road games when they come in having lost 2 of their last 3 and the average combined score in this spot is just 200.3. UNDER is also 35-17 in Utah's last 52 at home after scoring 110 or more in 2 straight games. Take the UNDER!

5* NCAAB - Non-Conference PLAY OF THE MONTH on San Francisco +6½ -109
Love the value here with the Dons as a decently priced dog against the Cardinal. Stanford has been one of the big surprises early, as they are 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS. However, both the betting public and the books have figured out just how good the Cardinal are and we are seeing them a little overpriced here against a good San Francisco team.
Dons are 9-2 to start the year and one of those losses is by a mere 4-points to Arizona State. That's not their only good showing against a Pac-12 foe, as they beat Cal at home by 12 earlier this month. Dons are 17-6 ATS last 23 on the road after 2 straight covers as a favorite.
Also a great system in play to fade the Cardinal. Favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 off a road win by 20 or more are just 17-45 (27%) ATS since 1997 in games involving 2 teams that have won 80% or more of their games. Take San Francisco!
|12-17-19||Florida v. Providence +5.5||83-51||Loss||-115||8 h 50 m||Show|
3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Providence +5½ -115
I really like the value here with the Friars as a decently priced dog against the Gators in Tuesday's matchup in the Hall of Fame Invitational at the Barclays Center. Florida has been one of the most overrated teams in the country by the books. While the Gators are a respectable 6-3 SU, they are just 2-7 ATS. Last time out they lost by 14 at Butler as a mere 3.5-point dog.
Providence hasn't been much better of late, but the Friars continue to play hard and they really get after you defensively. Providence is only allowing opponents to shoot 42% from the field against them and are 11th in the country in defensive turnover rate.
Florida's lackluster offense is a big reason for their disappointing start and they have struggled against good defensive teams. Gators are just 8-17 ATS last 25 with a total of 130 to 139.5 and 5-13 ATS last 18 vs teams that are holding opponents to 42% or worse from the field. Take Providence!
|12-16-19||Bulls v. Thunder -6||106-109||Loss||-110||9 h 44 m||Show|
3* NBA - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Thunder -6 -110
Really like the value here with Oklahoma City at home tonight against the Bulls. Chicago comes in off an upset win at home over the Clippers, which looks great on paper until you realize LA didn't play Kawhi Leonard, Lou Williams or Pat Beverly. Not to mention it was the Clippers 3rd game in 4 days and wrapped up a 6-game road trip.
Prior to taking advantage of that game against a depleted and tired Clippers team, the Bulls managed just 73 points in a home loss to the Hornets. Chicago's offense has been one of the worst in the league early on, as they come in 27th in effective field goal percentage.
Hard to win games on the road or even keep them close for that matter when you struggle to put the ball in the hoop. Thunder might be just 11-14, but do own a 7-5 record at home and are 5-3 over their last 8 with a 4-1 ATS mark in their last 5. Take Oklahoma City!
|12-16-19||Eastern Illinois v. Western Illinois +2.5||Top||85-47||Loss||-110||9 h 39 m||Show|
5* NCAAB - Heavy Hitter TOP PLAY on Western Illinois +2½ -110
I love the value here with Western Illinois as a small home dog against rival Eastern Illinois. Books have been consistently undervaluing the Leathernecks here of late, as they come in having covered 4 straight.
Eastern Illinois may have the better record, but they have played the much easier schedule. The Panthers also lack size, as they got a 6'5 guy playing center. The offense also doesn't produce at near the same level on the road. Eastern Illinois is averaging 78.3 ppg on the season, but just 68.3 ppg away from home.
That lack of offense on the road figures to really hurt them here, as Western Illinois comes in averaging 80.9 ppg on the season and 90.0 ppg at home, where they are shooting a healthy 48% from the field and 44% from long distance.
Leathernecks are a strong 9-4-1 ATS last 14 as a home dog and 5-1 ATS last 6 vs a team with a winning record. Panthers are 3-7 ATS last 10 road games vs a team with a losing home record and a mere 1-8 ATS last 9 times they have been listed as a road favorite. Take Western Illinois!

5* NCAAB - Vegas NO LIMIT Top Play on Samford +7½ -110
I absolutely love the value here with the Bulldogs as a near double-digit dog at Hawaii on Sunday. I know the competition hasn't been the best, but it's worth noting that Samford has scored 97 and 113 points in their last two games. In their last game they beat Houston Baptist by 23 as a mere 4.5-point favorite and I wouldn't be shocked at all if they won this game outright.
Hawaii is 6-3, but those 6 wins are against the likes of Pacific, Portland State, Florida A&M, New Orleans, San Francisco and Hawaii Pacific. Even with that soft schedule their largest margin of victory all season is by 13-points.
Rainbow Warriors are not a team to back as a favorite, as they have gone just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 when laying points. They are also a mere 1-4 ATS last 5 home games vs a team that's won fewer than 40% of their home games. Bulldogs are also a healthy 31-12-1 ATS last 44 non-conference games. Take Samford!
|12-15-19||Knicks v. Nuggets OVER 205.5||105-111||Win||100||10 h 0 m||Show|
3* NBA - Over/Under Total KNOCKOUT on Knicks/Nuggets over 205½ -110
Easy play here on the OVER for me in Sunday's NBA showdown between the Knicks and Nuggets. Denver comes into this one off back-to-back wins, scoring 114 against the Blazers on Thursday and 110 yesterday against the Thunder. Nuggets should have no problem putting up another big number here against a Knicks defense that is giving up 113.9 ppg on the road.
Key here is that with Denver playing on no rest, as well as their 3rd game in 4 nights, it's unlikely they give a top notch defensive effort in this one, especially given how bad this Knicks team is. Nuggets can simply go through the motions on defense and still win this game no problem. Knicks scored 124 on 48% shooting at the Warriors on Wednesday and 103 on 46% shooting at Sacramento on Friday. If NY can just get to 95 here we cash this thing easy. Take the OVER!

3* NCAAB - Over/Under Total DESTROYER on Long Beach State/USC under 149½ -109
The UNDER is worth a look in Sunday's NCAAB matchup that has USC hosting Long Beach State. I just think the number here is way too high for this one. I get that the 49ers aren't the best defensive team and USC has some offensive fire-power, but I think both offenses could struggle to produce in this one.
Both teams figure to be a bit rusty on offense, as USC hasn't played since Dec. 6 and Long Beach has been off since Dec. 7. Trojans last game was at TCU and they scored 80 points, but the UNDER is 8-1 in USC's last 9 at home after playing their previous game on the road, 15-6 in their last 21 as a home favorite and 11-3 in their last 14 after a game where they scored 80 or more. Take the UNDER!

5* NCAAB - Late Night PLAY OF THE MONTH on Gonzaga +3½ -110
I love the value here with the Bulldogs getting points at Arizona. While the Wildcats are greatly improved over last year and these two come into this game with identical 10-1 records, I feel Gonzaga is by far the better team.
Arizona comes in off a blowout 99-49 win and cover against Nebraska-Omaha, but prior to that had failed to cover 4 straight. Wildcats are also going to be down one of their better players in Stone Gettings.
Another key thing here is the matchup on the boards. Arizona's head coach Sean Miller flat out said his teams biggest weakness was their defensive rebounding. That's a big time problem against a Gonzaga team that is great at generating second chances by hitting the offensive glass. I just don't think the Wildcats will be able to go score-for-score with the juggernaut that is the Bulldogs offense. Take Gonzaga!

3* NCAAB - Late Night BAILOUT BLOWOUT on UC-Davis +8 -110
Easy play here for me on UC-Davis as a near double-digit dog against the Toreros. The Aggies are just 4-7, but the schedule has not been favorable. They also started out the season a dreadful 0-6 ATS. However, they have come to life in the last few weeks and come in having covered 4 straight and are off back-to-back outright wins as a dog.
San Diego has been on cruise control in their last two games, but are just 18-34 ATS last 52 at home after holding 2 straight opponents to 65 or less and are a dreadful 0-7 ATS in their last 7 at home after leading in their previous 2 games by 10+ points at the half. Take UC-Davis!

3* NBA - Prime Time ATS CASH COW on Bulls +6 -109
I think the Bulls are definitely worth a shot here as a decently priced home dog against the Clippers on Saturday. Chicago absolutely laid an egg at home last night against the Hornets, as they managed just 73 points on 30% shooting in a double-digit loss as a 7-point favorite.
That performance will have the betting public wanting nothing to do with the Bulls in this matchup against the Clippers, who come in having won 4 straight and are 13-2 in their last 15 overall. The books know this and have shaded the line here to help Chicago cover.
Note that we should get a max effort here from the Bulls off that clunker, especially against a top tier team like LA. As for the Clippers, they are the ones I would be concerned about not bringing their "A" game. LA is also playing on no rest after a hard fought win at Minnesota last night and will be concluding a lengthy 6-game road trip tonight. Take Chicago!

3* NCAAB - Vegas Undervalued UNDERDOG on Georgia Tech +15½ -109
I like the value here with Georgia Tech catching a big number against the Wildcats. Most are going to just look to lay the big number with Kentucky after seeing that the Yellow Jackets were trounced at home by Syracuse 97-63 in their last game. I just think we are going to get a big effort here from Georgia Tech off that ugly showing against the Orange.
On top of that, I think we could see Kentucky come out a bit flat. Wildcats haven't played in a week and in just a few days will be heading to Las Vegas to take on Utah. Wildcats are just 2-4 ATS in their last 6, so the books have definitely been inflating the number on them.
Yellow Jackets are 13-3 ATS last 16 off an upset loss by 10 or more as a favorite and 9-2 ATS last 11 on the road against strong teams that are outscoring opponents by 4+ points/game. Take Georgia Tech!

3* NCAAB - Afternoon ATS DESTROYER on Penn State -10½ -109
I got no problem laying the big number at home with Penn State as they get ready to host Alabama. The Nittany Lions come in off an impressive 76-69 win at home over No. 4 Maryland and should have no problem making easy work of the Crimson Tide.
With that win Penn State improved to 6-0 at home. Alabama is just 4-4 overall with their 4 wins against the likes of FAU, Furman, Southern Miss and SF Austin. Crimson Tide are just 1-3 away from home and a big reason for that is they are allowing 85.2 ppg on 48.4% shooting on the road. That's a problem, as Penn State is scoring 80.5 ppg at home.
Nittany Lions should also have a big edge here on the glass with their strong frontcourt and Alabama's guard heavy lineup. Not to mention the Crimson Tide's inability to take care of the ball. They rank 322nd in offensive turnover rate. This thing is going to get ugly in a hurry. Take Penn State!
|12-14-19||Oregon +4 v. Michigan||71-70||Win||100||2 h 22 m||Show|
4* NCAAB - Early Bird ATS ANNIHILATOR on Oregon +4 -110
I really like the value here with the Ducks as a small road dog against the Wolverines. Few coaches are better than Oregon's Dana Altman at getting his team ready for big games. Ducks have already compiled an impressive 7-1 ATS record this season when matched up against a team with a winning record.
Michigan had that great run in the Battle 4 Atlantics, knocking off Iowa St, UNC and Gonzaga in a 3-day span. They went from unranked to the Top 10 and I'm not so sure it was warranted. Michigan has lost 2 of 3 since returning from that tournament, including a 62-71 loss at Illinois last time out.
I know the Wolverines are a good home team, but Oregon is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 road games vs a team with a winning home record and 8-1 in their last 9 when facing a team that's won more than 60% of their home games. Take Oregon!

3* NCAAB - Oddsmakers LINE MISTAKE on Prairie View A&M +7 -110
The Panthers are worth a look here as a decently priced road dog against Loyola Marymount. Prairie View A&M is just 3-6 overall, but that was to be expected. Panthers haven't played at home since opening the season at home on Nov. 5 against Jarvis Xian. They have played each of their last 8 games away from home and all but two have been true road games.
While the wins haven't been there, they are an impressive 5-1 ATS and roll in having covered 3 straight. They only lost by 9 last time out at Arizona State and have also lost by just 4 at both UCF and Cal, as well a mere 14-point loss at Texas. If they can go on the road in those venues and keep it that close, they are capable of covering this and even winning outright.
Lions are just 1-8 ATS last 9 home games vs a team that's won fewer than 40% of their road games. Panthers are 4-1 ATS last 5 as a dog and 6-2 ATS last 8 on the road vs a team with a winning home record. Take Prairie View A&M!

5* NBA - Vegas Insider PLAY OF THE MONTH on Grizzlies +10½ -109
I love the value here with Memphis as a double-digit home dog against the Bucks. Milwaukee has won 16 straight and are fresh off a 15-point win over the Pelicans without Antetokounmpo and he's questionable to play here. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the Bucks gave him another night off, especially against a sub-par team like Memphis.
The Grizzlies have won two straight since star rookie Ja Morant returned from a 4-game absence and this team is more than capable of keeping this close with him on the floor. I also think this is a tricky spot for Milwaukee. They just played 3 straight at home and will return home for 3 more after this contest. Real easy for them to just kind of take this game off and go through the motions.
Bucks are a mere 7-24 ATS in their last 31 off 3 or more consecutive home wins and just 1-5 ATS last 6 on the road against a team that's won fewer than 40% of their home games. Grizzlies are returning home after 4-straight on the road. Grizzlies are 8-3 ATS last 11 at home off a road trip of 7 or more days. Take Memphis!

3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Northern Iowa -5½ -109
This is just too good a price to pass up with the Panthers. Dan Majerle's Antelope's team is better than their 4-7 record, but I still think they are outclassed in this one. UNI really came on strong at the end of last year and look like a team that's poised to make a serious run for a MVC title.
Panthers are 9-1 with the only loss coming by 5 to West Virginia. They just went on the road and beat Colorado 79-76 as a 9.5-point dog and that's a really impressive win with how good the Buffaloes are at home. UNI improved to 7-1 ATS on the season and a perfect 4-0 ATS away from home. Take Northern Iowa!

3* NBA - Over/Under Total ANNIHILATOR on 76ers/Celtics over 210 -110
I like the value here with the OVER at this price. A lot of people are going to be thinking UNDER here with this being a matchup of two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, especially with how these teams can get after it on defense.
The thing is, I just don't think these two are going to have enough in the tank to bring their "A" game defensively. Boston just played last night at Indiana in a game that saw 239 combined points. It's also the Celtics 3rd game in 4 days. 76ers had yesterday off, but are playing their 4th game in 6 nights.
OVER is 25-10 in the Celtics last 35 home games after a combined score of 235 or more. It's also 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two in Boston. Take the OVER!

4* NBA - Late Night BAILOUT BLOWOUT on Warriors -4½ -110
Easy play here on the Warriors laying a short number at home against the Knicks. The fact that the Warriors are just 5-20 overall and just lost at home as a favorite to a bad Memphis team, is a big part of the value we are getting here.
The thing is the Warriors are still playing to win and this Knicks team is one they can have their way with, especially at home. New York is 1-10 on the road this season and are getting outscored on the road by 15.1 ppg. Not to mention the Knicks are in a tough scheduling spot playing in the 2nd game of a back-to-back on the road after last night's game in Portland. Take Golden State!
|12-11-19||Hawks v. Bulls -4.5||102-136||Win||100||9 h 50 m||Show|
3* NBA - Big Money ATS CASH COW on Bulls -4½ -110
I like the value here with the Bulls laying a short number at home against the Hawks. Chicago has went from a team a lot of people were really high on to start the year to a team no one really wants anything to do with, especially as a favorite.
Those that have taken advantage of the poor perception on the Bulls have been rewarded with some nice profits here of late. Chicago has covered 5 of their last 6 and now are laying a small number against a bad Hawks team that is just 3-10 on the road, where they are getting outscored by 13.3 ppg. Take Chicago!

5* NCAAB - Sharp Money PLAY OF THE MONTH on Boise State +3 -110
Love the value here with the Broncos as a road dog against the Golden Hurricane, as my numbers say Boise State should be favored here. Tulsa comes in at 7-2, but it's a fraudulent mark, as they have played the 353rd ranked strength of schedule.
We saw some of how overvalued the Golden Hurricane are in their last game, as they lost outright at home as a 13-point favorite to Arkansas State. Boise State on the other hand has been way undervalued of late. Broncos are a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games.
I just don't see Tulsa being able to keep pace offensively. Tulsa is only averaging 70.9 ppg and that's against opponents that on average give up 75.7 ppg. Boise State is scoring 81.0 ppg and that's against opponents that are giving up just 71.0 ppg. Take Boise State!

4* NBA - Situational VEGAS INSIDER on Rockets -10½ -115
I got no problem laying double-digits here with Houston, as we should get a big effort with the Rockets coming off a upset loss at home to the Kings. Not many better teams to get right against than the Cavs right now. After losing by 47 at Philadelphia on Saturday they responded by losing by 22 at Boston. Houston can pretty much name the score in this one.
Rockets have covered 5 of their last 6 vs a team that's won fewer than 40% of their games and have covered 4 of their last 5 off a loss and failed cover. Cavs are just 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games vs a team with a winning record and have lost 4 straight as a dog. Take Houston!

3* NCAAB - No Doubt ATS BLOWOUT on Massachusetts +4½ -110
I like the value here with UMass as a small home dog against the Bulldogs. This is the perfect time to buy low on the Minutemen after losing 5 straight and getting drubbed in their last game at Harvard 89-55. It' also the perfect time to sell high on Yale, who has won 5 straight and covered 8 in a row.
It's not like UMass has been losing to a bunch of bad teams. They were a dog in all 5 losses and 4 of those were away from home. We should get a max effort here from the Minutemen in this one. For Yale, I think they are not only overpriced, but also in a tough spot here playing their 3rd straight on the road in a 8 day stretch. Take UMASS!

3* NBA - Late Night ATS BAILOUT on Knicks +9 -105
I like the value here with the Knicks as a near double-digit dog against the Blazers. This is just too big a price for Portland to be laying right now. Blazers are down two starters to injury in Zach Collins and Rodney Hood and are still trying to adjust to life with Carmelo Anthony.
Portland has lost 3 of 4 and are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games. Knicks have lost 9 straight, which is why the line is what it is, but several of those have been single-digit defeats. History is also on our side with New York.
Underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points who have lost 4 or more consecutive games in the month of December are 45-20 (69%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. Take New York!
